To prepare for the UWHL meeting on June 30, we need to know how many people are interested in playing on each of these teams. This interest will be measured by the number of people submitting a $100 non-refundable** deposit post-marked by June 15.  Those players submitting a deposit post-marked by June 15 will receive a 10% discount on season dues.  

Please complete the survey below to indicate your interest.

We will not hold evaluations this year.  Instead, there will be an All-Club scrimmage in Aug or Sept so the coaches have a chance to gauge players and ensure proper team placement.  If you request to move up a level from last season or are new the club, participation in the scrimmage is strongly recommended.  Details will follow later in the summer.

We will make decisions throughout the summer for the fall season based on the number of people who submit deposits and/or confirm that they will play in fall.  We realize no one wants to think about committing to the fall season now, but we need your response to properly plan.  The more players we have, the cheaper the season dues will be so INVITE YOUR FRIENDS TO PLAY!

*Season dues are highly dependent on the number of rostered players and number of games required by the UWHL.  The number of practices will be adjusted to stay within this price range.  The number of practices are subject to the number of teams we have (so ice can be shared by teams).  Final price will not be available until late summer when the UWHL schedule is released.

**The deposit will be applied to your season dues.  If the team for which you register does not form due to too few people, you will receive your deposit back.
